larryLSB (533) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Poured from bottle, darker brown with medium tan head. Malty sweet nose, dried fruits, somewhat balanced taste. Nice medium bodied beer with a kind of sticky texture. Fairly enjoyable, but overpriced for a 6 pack.

It was a bit rich for my taste. The flavors were powerful it just packed a heavier punch than I was wanting or expecting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle with commonmac. Brown with full white head. Strong smell of dark notes. Sugary, malty, full bodied. More malty than hoppy . Rich. Ok to good.

BeerRenter76 (1017) - Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2017
Originally rated on 12/31/08. The brewers description of this as part scotch ale, IPA, and brown ale is pretty accurate. Aroma of toasted caramel malts, alcohol, and some floral hints. Flavor is the same as aroma with some nuttiness and a coffee finish. A little on the sweet side but its hearty and filling, I liked it.

mice (980) - FINLAND - APR 30, 2017
0,33l bottle from Beergium. Dark brown beer with long lasting light beige head. Aroma has sweet dark malts, some caramel and roastiness. Maybe some hints of coffee also. Taste has sweet malts, hops, some roastiness and coffee. Medium body and medium carbonation. Quite ok.

3.5
commonmac (1263) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2017
12oz bottle picked up at The Ale Jail in St. Paul. Consumed in a spiegelau IPA glass. Amber/brown in color with a light tan head. Aroma has traits of hops with toffee, caramel, and an almost cookie like characteristic. Taste has qualities of molasses with toffee and brown sugar. Notes of coffee almost come through which was a little bit unexpected. There is a bitterness present especially at the finish with a residual bit of sugar. Really a strange blend of a lighter coffee stout and a traditional Dogfish Head IPA. Mouthfeel is slightly thin but has some minor oily characteristics. Something a little too unbalanced in this effort for my taste. Pretty decent for a brown ale.
